Halloween Invitation Tips:

Traditionally, it is advised to send out invitations eight weeks before your event. At the very least get the invites out 2-4 weeks before the party. The sooner the better, but don't let this keep you from getting killer invitations at the last minute. You can always rush them if time is an issue. Make sure you include the date/time, and the location of the party. You can also include RSVP information and the host/hostess name.  Don't forget to mention if it's "Costumes Required"
eyeball theme Halloween Party Decorations and Party Supplies
You can use good general Halloween decorations for this theme. Fog machines, orange twinkle lights and witches cauldrons will help with an eerie atmosphere. But to pull through the theme the main focus of the decorations should be spooky, scary eye! Here are a few of our recommendations:
  • Place spooky flashing eyeballs in your front bushes, window box, or up your walkway to greet your guests as they arrive at the party.
  • Hang pictures of eyeballs (print them out online) on your windows as an eerie greeting.
  • Place a catacombs scene setter in your front hall or foyer with Sticky Tack.
  • Fill jars with sticky eyeballs and put them behind bars or on tables.
Really, any traditional Halloween decoration with eyes are perfect for this party... spiders, cats, ravens and bats!

eyeball Table Decorations 
We think black paper goods are the easiest choice for an eyeball theme party.  We'd cover the tablecloths with eyeball stickers or even those fun googly eyes you can get at any craft store.  

There are great centerpiece options for an eerie eyeball party.  Here are a few:
  • Use witches hats for centerpieces. (You can insert witches wherever you like with this theme. Remember eyeballs are found in every witches cauldron.)  
  • Vases of varied heights filled with rubber eyeballs look creepy and perfect.
  • We love using pinatas as a centerpiece.  What could be better than an eyeball pinata at this party?
Then scatter skeleton parts as confetti all around the table.
An eyeball cake would be great at any eyeball theme party and is simple to make.  Start with a round cake with white frosting.  Pipe a red circle of frosting on the center and then using red frosting, pipe small squiggly lines coming out from the center.  Even a cake novice can create a cake (or cupcakes) like this!
 
halloween Party Games

Eyeball Relay Race - Have your guests do a relay race, but instead of passing a batton, they pass a toy eyeball from spoon to spoon. They must run without dropping it or start again at the beginning of their lap in the race.
 
Eyeball Pinata - This is really easy to make from a beach ball and paper mache. Pinata's are always the "hit" of any party!
 
I Spy with My Little Eye - An easy game, often used by adults to occupy bored children on car journeys and the like. One person (the spyer) secretly chooses an object. They then say "I spy with my little eye something..." and then give a clue about the object, such as the color or shape. The players take turns to guess the name of the object.
